While we regret that this must be done and the added time that it will take for new members to be approved, it is necessary at this time. We hope to have legitimate new members approved in a timely manner, no longer than a couple of hours. If the Administrators are online at the time, it can be as soon as a couple of minutes. Thank you for your patience.

    Hey guys, I found this really nice documentary today and haven't found it in here, although it's already two years old. Thought it might be a nice on to share with you. It's about losing the ability to find the way back to the snow mobile from the center of a lake due to a snowstorm.

    Have fun:

    That was interesting. Picked up a tip or two. Also some good review. I won't spoil it with comment except to say that it's always good to stop at a convenience store on your way out of town and grab a few things before heading to the woods.

    Seen it before but it was fun to watch again. Good lesson for us about dealing with someone who does not have the skills, that we practice here on the forum. That tubular plastic sheet is cool. Wonder where to get that.

    Cool video. I could listen to Russians talk all day and no I don't understand a word of it.

    Want to be super careful opening a can that way. Potential for a very ugly cut.

    Guide or no guide, you can bet I'd have a few essentials on me.

    Improvised boot took me back to my younger years.

    Great video, thanks for posting. I think Trump and Putin are looking to do an outing like this together.

    Omg that would be great! I have a feeling Putin would do just fine, he's a tough dude.
